Collector by L.C. Ricardo


Like bread soaked in fragrant honey,
things are bloated
with poetry.
Beneath surfaces, electrified
lines drone and sting.  Blood rushes
to my fingertips.

Words are winged
photons that startle and scatter.
I catch them, pin them to lined paper,
anchored by articles,
labeled with punctuation marks,
one
here, one
there.
